When you can't get the real thing, you do all kinds of unreal things.

Deep End is a 1970 British-German cult film directed by Jerzy Skolimowski. The film stars British actors Jane Asher and John Moulder Brown, in the lead roles. Brown plays a fifteen year old boy named Mike who starts a new job at a bathhouse and falls in love with his new co-worker, the beautiful Susan (Asher). His love however turns into an increasing obsession that would become deadly.

The movie, following its release, was a minor hit with the cult scene, until it was largely forgotten, and even presumed lost, until the film print was found in 2010 and re shown in movie theaters, later getting a remastered DVD/Blu-Ray release in 2011, where it continued to receive positive reviews.
